Movie Info

Celebrated playwright, Harold Blumenthal, has passed away after succumbing to cardiac arrest while laughing at his own joke. Now, Harold's estranged and jealous brother, Saul, must confront his personal hang-ups to deliver himself from an epic bout of constipation. Meanwhile, Saul's wife Cheryl and son Ethan must grapple with their own personal obstacles through a set of circumstances so improbably ironic they might as well have been lifted from one of Harold's plays.

Critic Reviews for Blumenthal

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

Fisher is a fine actor, but his movie is entirely derivative.

Jun 19, 2014 | Full Review…

Not all of Fisher's debut feature works, but when it does the results are lacerating, hilarious, and surprisingly forgiving.

Top Critic

Heralding the arrival of Seth Fisher as a voice to watch, Blumenthal is much like its characters: a frankly funny and original piece of work.

Mar 28, 2014 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A limp facsimile of a Woody Allen ensembler set in a familiar world of New York Jewish intellectuals - minus only the wit, and the intellect.

Top Critic

Sharp yet overdetermined, "Blumenthal" doesn't breathe naturally - it's a comedy in a box. Just not a box that everyone will want to open.

Let's see what Fisher does next.
